Q: Tell us about the Morning Walk collection. What were you inspired by?
Leah: I was inspired by my return to Texas from a 2-year stint in Brooklyn, and particularly my return to our beautiful neighborhood in Austin, Texas. I take my dog Oslo on walks each morning and the collection was inspired by the little bits of nature I see on those walks and the colors of the home and buildings in our neighborhood. Austin is a truly beautiful and colorful town, so I wanted to celebrate that and how happy I was to be home,
Q: What is your favorite thing about being a designer?
Leah: Being able to express my creativity on a regular basis is pretty much a dream. Being a fabric designer in particular is great because I absolutely love seeing what everyone makes with my fabric. It;s like a collaboration with this other human whom you’ve never met before who could be living on the other side of the world and you’ve just given them a little piece to their puzzle.

Q: What’s your favorite print from the Morning Walk collection?
Leah: Limestone Feel Indigo! This is a print that I brought back from my very first fabric collection, Maya. I get many emails searching for that collection, so I wanted to bring some of it back and this print was my personal favorite. It feels good to see it back after all these years,
Q: If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Leah: Chocolate. Hot chocolate, baked chocolate, raw chocolate, you name it. Although I think I would be incredibly unhealthy!
